Legal action could help Texas residents combat retaliation

There are many instances in which individuals may feel concerned about certain aspects of their jobs. In some cases, these aspects may be serious issues such as discrimination, wage violations or other unlawful practices. Many workers may feel the need to speak out against such unjust actions, but as a result, they could face wrongful termination or other forms of retaliation.

Texas residents may be interested in one out-of-state woman's predicament with such circumstances. Reports stated that the woman had been an employee at a university, and she claims that one of her supervisors participated in discriminatory actions toward Hispanic individuals. She also stated that she had not been properly compensated for overtime work, and a white employee in a similar position to hers was given a better work schedule. 

The woman complained about these unfair actions, and reports stated that she faced retaliation as a result. It was unclear what type of actions may have been taken out against her. However, it was noted that the woman was terminated from her position after filing her complaints. The woman is apparently making efforts to have these issues addressed.

Though many individuals may hope that they are always treated fairly, it is an unfortunate reality that fairness may prove evasive in certain situations. However, there are laws in place to help ensure that individuals do receive fair treatment, and if those laws are violated, there may be cause for legal action to take place. Texas workers for have been the victims of wrongful termination or other retaliation may wish to consider filing civil claims in order to seek justice.
